Since the demise of the dynamic duo Thunderpuss in 2003, DJ Barry Harris had been largely absent from the commercial production and remix industry he and Cris Cox helped established, for almost a decade.
In 2014, he emerged and slowly began to re-establish his name with original remixes like ‘ Party ‘Round the Word’ by Jason Dottley & Debbie Holiday, classic pop remixes like ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Taylor and even Thunderpuss re-remixes of massive club hits like ‘Stranger in My House’ by Tamia. Then he started adding bootleg mashups of current pop hits like ‘Sorry’ by Justin Bieber coupled with the equally-titled by Madonna; and classic mashups like ‘I Feel Love’ by Donna Summer coupled with ‘My Love Is Your Love’ by Whitney Houston.
It wasn’t long before the labels caught on and began sanctioning (if not commissioning) his bootleg remixes for their current roster of pop stars like Sia ‘Alive’, Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding ‘Outside’ and Adele’s epic ‘Hello’ creating a remix powerhouse for a new generation of club-goers, effectively showing the current of remixers how it’s properly done.
Party Favorz has been at the forefront of proudly featuring DJ Barry Harris productions and remixes on the site as one of our top go-to DJs of the moment. A moment that lasted much longer than anticipated with his factory-like output matching that of Almighty, 7th Heaven and Tiesto. The only difference between these mass-manufactured remixers is that he is his own ghost-remixer. How utterly unoriginal that he would lend his name to something he actually remixes himself [snark].
His ability to resurrect elements of his past work and brilliantly adapt it to current trends in remixes is unsurpassed if not awe-inspiring while his continued output suggests a longevity that’s only beginning to scratch the top surface.
It’s for these reasons and more, Party Favorz honors DJ Barry Harris with this worthy Tribute set. Here’s looking to 2017 and beyond.
